How absurd. Since when is wartime guilt transferable, from generation to generation? On that basis I could play the victim card against Norway, because the vikings raided my ancestors’ village on the Thames back in the ninth century. If the Koreans want justice for ‘comfort women’, let them start with Kim Jong-Il. That homicidal midget has kept a platoon of them on call for years.

This doesn't bother me because it's relatively recent, as when Bush apologized to Eastern Europeans for the “Western Betrayal” that happened after WW2. If it removes a sore point between nations, then I think it's a good think. It can be psychologically important, because now they can't say “they never apologized.” Have you never apologized on anybody else’s behalf, or seen anybody else apologize on anybody else’s behalf?

You don't have enough firing brain cells to realize some of the soldiers, the politicians, and the victims are still alive? And that that makes a difference?
How sad for you.
And yes, this post is very much deserved. Lay off your crack pipe. I have met some of the survivors.
